Our Insights

This is a zoned, neighborhood school. To see if your address is zoned for this school use our Elementary School Guided Search. For more information about how zones work, visit our New to NYC page and see the "Zoned Schools and other options" section.

Why might this school be a good fit for you? If its your zoned school, it's close to home. If you can walk to it that means an easier (and perhaps safer) commute. It's also more convenient to arrange playdates and get involved in your school. You can share pick up and drop off duties with other families. Most of all, you are guaranteed to get in except in rare instances of overcrowding. If this isnt your zoned school, you are still welcome to apply but your chances of getting in will be lower.
